Some but it doesn't like Israel still a guy who does and as a -- orchestrator.
I'm talking about -- Republican Arizona senator Jeff like senator good to have you.
I don't get a chance to hear what to but it was saying that this is actually gonna cost trillions over the years of this idea that this can relieve our deficit.
Does doesn't add up you say to that lot.
-- CBO just came out yesterday and had said that it would -- made about a 197.
Billion dollars in deficit reduction over the first ten years and a lot more than that in the second two years 700 you know it's the same CBOs you know asserted that said much the same about quad cities and healthcare and it has yet you -- Evidence studio is those estimates are only as good as the assumptions that you put in them right I would argue in this case that -- assumptions are pretty correct that.
When you bring people -- and when you bring people out of the shadows to participate more in the economy.
And then you have a system that actually works.
Then we'll be better off today they also looked at economic output and it's set over the first ten years it would lead to.
Five outside 2.3 percent I guess and I think by 2012.
33 it's about five point 4% increase in economic output -- It's not a -- that numbers I'm sort of survey is -- it counted out by saying well a lot of these are are just high school in that educated.
You know illegals now may be legal Americans down the road the the economic impact and how they're going to help with the job situation.
That just isn't there would what do you say to them.
-- say we have a lot of history to dispute that over time those who start out at low wage jobs.
Typically move up to higher wage jobs and and don't forget this legislation also improved includes.
Measures that allow us to.
Actually attract people with stem degrees -- Ph.D.s and master's degrees in the stem fields.
And allows them to stay and create jobs so it's not just on the -- -- -- that this will benefit the economy.
Do you think that being.
Part of again today it has been.
An area its debut with its -- -- -- wouldn't want to use Sox.
I was singled out for using Twitter to make some of racially disparaging other remarks.
He apologized to those remarks you apologize on behalf views on those remarks -- nevertheless.
Did you find it curious that they got out -- all.
And why did god now if you didn't have the prominent position you presently do on this immigration debate.
-- I don't know what all I've been working on this issue for a number of years and so.
I'm just happy to be involved in this process and make it a better bill in Arizona we're concerned about border security and I can tell you.
We have good border security provisions in the bill and it's about to get a lot better with some of the amendments that I believe will be adopted in the coming days.
I know that but they left at this stuff here Sunday as a kid maybe did some stupid things as you pointed out but it was out of the -- now and then not now no not -- that's again as if he said.
But if you or anyone else would it it.
-- out of them.
I I I have no idea just you know he's apologized and apologized and will deal with it and move on.
And I hope I get this immigration bill passed in a way that will help the economy and help our situation in Arizona with the border.
Do you think though that among prominent mainstream Republicans this is actually hurting and they want to move this -- forward that want to see.
And immigration no law that sticks and passes.
But keep hearing it from the right in their party that says look you would give it up on enforcement border enforcement -- a sellout.
You for amnesty -- answer.
Well I can tell -- none of us from Arizona would dare put border security second or third.
It has to remain Paramount we have a situation where as it has arizonans we -- we pay a disproportionate burden.
The federal government's failure to secure the border and so we're making sure that we have.
Good border security like I said it's it's about to get better with some amendments that are coming forward.
And I just reject the notion of this bill isn't tough on border enforcement.
Senator thank you very much -- saying hey thank you senators like.
